Construction will begin at 9 p.m. on Friday, May 15 and will continue non-stop until 5 a.m. Monday, May 18.

The number of available traveling lanes will be reduced on I-20 in both directions near the exits that service the Morehouse College campus.

The speaker for Commencement is former Massachusetts governor Deval Patrick. 

Baccalaureate is the final spiritual gathering for the senior class and will take place on Saturday, May 16, 2015 at 3 p.m. in the Martin Luther King Jr. International Chapel.

Remember the Resilience of Forebears, Deval Patrick Tells the Morehouse Class of 2015

By ADD SEYMOUR JR. — No matter what is thrown their way, the Morehouse College class of 2015 must harken back to their ancestors who showed resilience in making their way, former Massachusetts’s governor Deval Patrick told graduating seniors Sunday.

“It’s about being as mindful and as determined as your forebears to keep on marching,” he said. “You will get beat down… but you have personal responsibility, for both our forebears and to future generations to get back up and keep on marching.  Learn to let a setback be just a setback, not a defeat.”
